Winter storm to hit southern U.S. on Friday

Published on : Tuesday, December 4, 2018

After impacting California and the southwestern U.S., the storm will move into Texas from the west on Friday.  The warm, humid air from the Gulf of Mexico will come in contact with the chilly air in the central Plains. The surge of more tropical air into eastern Texas will fuel storms and bring rounds of heavy rain in southern and eastern Texas by Friday.

 

 

Some of these storms could turn severe, producing strong winds, rainfall and tornadoes.  These may lead to poor visibility. Slippery and dangerous travel conditions are expected.

 

 

 

As per Isaac Longley AccuWeather Meteorologist, the southern Plains will face a potent winter storm by the end of the week.

 

 

 

Across portions of Colorado, Kansas and Oklahoma, a quick-hitting snowstorm is expected, bringing significant accumulations to parts of western Oklahoma and southern Kansas.

 

 

 

With the rain to the south and snow to the north, an icy, wintry mix will impact Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Missouri.

 

 

 

There is possibility of travel delays and property damage throughout Texas and parts of Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma.

 

 

 

As per Longley, by Saturday, the threat of storms, freezing rain and snow will shift eastward into the Southeast, including southern Missouri where the heavier snow may be found.

 

 

 

 

Storms, heavy rain, ice and snow all combined will lead to extensive travel delays both on area roads and through airports. Planned travel may need to be put off until the weekend.
